Adjust Display Settings in Windows 10
Edited by Jay
Changing the display settings in Windows 10, or any PC for that matter is something all computer owners have to do at some point or another. Everything from the screen resolution, right through to connecting additional monitors is handled from the display settings. If you're running Windows 10 on a laptop, for example, being comfortable with editing the display setting is important because screen brightness plays a significant role in battery usage.
Windows 10 also comes equipped with nightlight settings. Similar to what you see on most modern smartphones, the nightlight option helps lower the level of blue light that LCD's output. This is extremely helpful because studies have shown that exposure to computer monitors before bedtime can delay a user's natural ability to fall asleep. If you're someone what works on a PC in the hours directly before bedtime, the night light feature is almost a necessity.
